I'm worried about scheduling my initial monitoring appointment because at this point I have two appointments for my International Coordinator job Monday afternoon, and my first day teaching school on Tuesday.
A less than kind nurse answered the phone when I called Friday and informed me that others who had already started their cycles were in front of me (I was only spotting which does not count), and she was running out of appointments for Monday. I don't know what I'll do if they demand that I come in on Tuesday before 4 p.m. I can reschedule the Monday appointments, but Tuesday is not so much a flexible situation.
I've started the doxycycline, and I guess it's okay if I start the Femara on Day 3 or 4? She said she'd give me the prescription at my first monitoring appointment.
Plan is in place to purchase the donor vial tomorrow... t'will be nice to avoid walking around the bustling streets of San Fran.cisco with a huge cryo tank! This clinic is in the more mellow hamlet of Fre.mont. A bit longer drive but less traffic and an available parking lot.
On another note, I love the references to "The Red Thread" that have been going around the IF blog world lately. The novel has to do with infertility and adoption stories, but I'm not sure of the plot. I just love the thought of my baby and I being connected by a red thread, and the thread growing shorter and shorter, until the baby is in my arms and the thread is just a dot. Here is what I believe is the related Chinese proverb:
“An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet regardless of time, place or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle, but it will never break.” – Chinese Proverb
